Quo Vadis Korea: The Last Custodian of Confucianism and Its Atypical Transformation

Author: 

Azad, Shirzad

In the mid-20th century, Korea was dubbed the last custodian of Confucianism, but it is now very hard to even call the country a truly Confucian society. Following this argument, Quo Vadis Korea? explores critically how some five decades of breakneck industrialization and unbridled modernization could ineluctably change the nation so fundamentally that their repercussions now sharply negate many basic principles of Confucianism in one way to another.

Trickle and Flow: Chapters in the History and Culture of Water

Author: 

Roth, Marty

Credentials: 

Ph.D, University of Chicago

For what is water, children, which seeks to make all things level, which has no taste or color of its own, but a liquid form of Nothing?
Graham Swift, Waterland

I am writing to you from a far-off country.
Here I should explain this
business of waves. It is insanely
complicated, and the sea . . .
I beg you, trust me. Would I want
to mislead you? She, the sea, is
not only a word. She is not only a
fear. She exists, I swear it to you

The Social Media Wars: Sunni and Shi'a Identity Conflicts in the Age of Web 2.0 and the Arab Spring

Author: 

Karolak, Magdalena

Credentials: 

Ph.D, University of Silesia (see Description)

This soon to be released monograph evaluates the role of the social media in strengthening and transforming religious identities in the aftermath of the Arab Spring. Focusing specifically on Bahrain, this study assesses how the sectarian interpretation of the protests exacerbated social divisions and reverberated around the Middle East intensifying sectarian loyalties. The social media contribute to negotiation and re-construction of the collective identities of the groups involved in the 2011 uprising, which is visible through their online manifestations.
